What’s the difference between canvas and paper prints?


All of our canvas prints are printed on acid free, lignin free heavyweight cotton-poly blend. The canvas base is enhanced with elastic polymers providing high tensile strength and flexibility for gallery wrap stretching without cracking. Our paper prints are printed on acid‑free, fine art paper with an elegantly textured 100% cotton base and natural white.




What is the difference between an unstretched and stretched canvas print?
